For sonic weeks past three mysteriously-noting men have encli morning gathered in a basement in board of trade alley and spent the day experimenting. They would get together around a box, and one of them giving it a whirl, the other two would say "wheat up," or "wheat down." Then would follow a consultation. Tho mysterious meetings have occurred day after day. The box has been whirled tint! whirled, "wheat up" and "wheat down" have been shouted some millions of times. There have followed little consultations until nil records of these has been lost. Tlie mysterious triumvirate was sot down its conspirators Irish Inviiiciblcs. But they were too well dresed. They ncted like thieves; but, aside from the whii lings which took place and then the consultations, there was nothing to cause suspicion. They acted something like lard exjcrt8,but they made no analysis. The trio, in fact, were Morris Martin, whilom ; C. L. Campbell, a horse-trader, anil Jim Woleott, a board of trade member, for the nonce down in the shoes. They were simply inventing a new game. Tuesday, at Springfield, tho trio took out incorporation papers for the Plnenix Grain and Stock Exchange, with a capital stock of $:500,0()0. It is the first time on record that gamblers ever had the hardihood to go to Springfield and blandly nsk for letter of incorporation for a The lMiienix Grain and Stock Exchange is not to be a bucket-shop, as one naturally, from its name, would be led to believe. It is to be a gambling saloon, wherein Martin's now game is to be played. The new game, it is said, beats faro or loulette; it even goes ahead of cntps. It is really a species of The name of the concern, the letters of incorporation, the pretended $.S00,(0) capital, are blind". They are clever dodges to avert police e. The lay-out is simple. There is a box. In it are plnccd cards upon which nre printed tho words "pork," "wheat," "oats," and "corn." The box is whirled. Theie are two places whoro the cards can lodge. If wheat Hies up, the fellow who "speculated" on the "bull" side of wheat wins his money; if the wheat card drops down, the "bear" "speculator" takes the money. It is, in street parlnnce, n great fake. Martin always was a slick one. lie was clever enough, when in partnership with Mike McDonald, to "get nwny with the bos." Hut it takes a far higher order of talent to inaugurate u new game of chance than to operate with theold ones. Martin when he opens his new "chance shop" will not have a card around the place. Then will be no betting on color, nor "coppering" of kings or queens; nor any lay-outs; nor any green tables. There will not be any chips, either, The windowx will be wide open, and there will not bo any heavy doors with colored men or guard. Business will be opened up in the basement in boaid of trade alley where the extensive pool-room was. Theie will be a huge gilt and bliek ijn as follows: "Phienix (train and Stock Exchange " There will be the box, of course, nnd the little pnstboards with the "wheat," " pork," "com," and " lard " printed upon tlieiiu There will be a man to do the whirling, to be sure, and a man to coon in tho money, but none of tho hoi rid features of a gambling hell. All gamblers' alley is in a ferment over the new shop. The sports from one end to the other of the city nre nmnzed at the simplicity of tho scheme, nnd nre cudgeling themselves thnt instead of "heeling" the police, thoy did not think of Martin's fake. Meanwhile the three incorporators nre pushing things for their opening next week. The city is being flooding with paper. The little pnstboanl cards nre being prepared by the hundred thousand. Tho room is being filled with benches and other furniture. Martin is likely to go down in history along with Poker Sohcnck and the French monarch who discovered whist. A PRETTY PLAYTHING What IKra Kmitli'x Little Children Found lu I'ejiiiHylvntilfi. STnouosnuna, Pa., Sept. 2. The singr. lnr fact thnt venomous snakes will frequently permit children to play with them and handle them without molestation, had nn apt illustration in Eldied township. Two littlo children, one but two and tho other but threo years o' age, were playing together. Tho former was tho child of Franklin Smith, tho other the child of John Heinz. They were playing in Smith's yaid. Mrs. Smith having occasion to go to tho door saw tho childien sido by side on the graBs. Her child had a short stick in its hand, with which it was giving frequent light taps on the ground in front of it. Mrs. Smith supposed they were playing with a small land turtlo which had been scon nbout the yard for several days, and after enjoying the childish mirth for 8 m e time she walked toward them to see what they wero doing with the turtle. "When alio approached within n few feet of them, she was horrified to see thnt tho children were ninusing themselves.with a largo rattlesnake. For a moment she was speechless and motionless. Tho snake lay at full length, apparently enjoying the caresses and attention of the children. At each touch of tho stick the snake- would simply raiso its head, open its mouth, nnd dart its tongue in and out several times. It was this thnt mndo tho children lnugh. lie-covering herself, Mrs. Smith advance 1 n iteu or two nnd the snnko discovered .her. Instantly its whole attitude changed. L.mc n Hash it threw itself into the coil of springing, in which it nlone can inflict its deadly bite. This movement frightened tho children and they moved out of its reach. Mrs. Smith thon found a club and succeeded in dispatching the snake: this dono she fainted away. She was found unconscious on tho ground by a neighbor who was passing, with the children crying at her side nnd tho dead snake a few feet away. She was soon resuscitated and told the above story. The snaku was over four feet and had seven rattles. - i WHERE IS SHE ? Inquiry For llattlo Jnne l'ouoll, Who I.dlt ItochfHtfr Suddenly. Troy, Sept. 2. Superintendent Quigjey hns received the following interesting epistlo: " One hundred dollars reward will bo paid to a relative or stranger who is tho first to inform mo of the abode of Mrs. Hattie Jane Powell. Sho left Kochcster, N. Y., August 23, not very well nnd very weak, and almost broken-hearted. She left a letter statinc that she would never go near or writo to any of her i irjcnds. J he cruel letter which she received on that day, and which was the solo cause of her great trouble and untold anguish, came from nn unknown onctny and not from the person she supposed. The letter was probably a good imitation, and since she left it has been proved that it was wholly untruo and a base forgery. Mrs. Powell is responsible, and I am sure sho would rather lose $10,000 than not to receive the foregoing information. This is sent to hor friends, relntives nnd others to get their assistance, that this information may be telegraphed to her the moment any ono get word from her. For the assistance of strangers I will say thnt sho is a neat little lady, twenty-four years old. dark hair and eyes, about four feet six inches high, and had two large trunks with her. I would like the following porsonal advertisement published in newspapers, nnd the editor of the newspaper in which Mrs. Powel first rends snid advertisement will bo paid S100 cash. She may now be nervously prostrated from excitement and attended by a physician, aud I am sure she will bo as anxious to 'get this information as we are to give it. Address a letter and telegram to lier and also to me, Mrs. Jcnnio Daniels, 488 West Fayetto stieet, Syracuse." The The following is a cony of tho only "personal" to be published, to-wit: "Dear llattic That letter which made you feel so bad was a forgery, and was never sent by the person you supposed.

Little Johnnie CullunJ a .simple-minded child, about ten years old, weary, ragged and dirty, was found lecciitly looking longingly into the the Kings County Truants' llome in Cypress Hills, lie told Superintendent Wagner that he was tin orithan, but he did not know where he had lived. .Mary Mack, his aunt, hud given him .'i cents in the morning, he said, and told him to walk to the Supei Wagner, after giving him a meal and sending lain to the play-ground, communicated with the New Lots police to enlist their aid in searching lor the relatives of the boy. Wlme the messenger was absent on his lnksion, .Johnnie, although too young to know what suicide means, apparently tiied to hang himself. Ho fastened the seup rope about his neck, and was swinging clear ol tho ground when the Superintendent, hearing the other children scream, ran to the place. The child was black in the face from Hullbcatiou when cut down. He was turned over to the officer who had been sent to investigate hiscasc, and the Society I for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children I was notified. In the meantime he was scut ' to Raymond Strcut. Jail. If his folks are not found ho uill be committed to the House ot ltcfugc. - - i- I- A CURIOUS DOCUMENT.

Moran Attempted Jto Commit Nttlcldo nnd Ncnr lie Will Carry for I.Uo nnd How Mo Got Itrniurkiihle Case. Nnw IlAvr.x, Sept. 2. John A. Moran, of Norwich, shot himself four times in tho head in his room at the Tremont House. The pistol was held close to lys forehead, but being of sninll calibre the balls failed to penetrate to the brain, and the suicide will probably recover. The his skull in flattening bullets fired at closo range is pronounced phenomenal. Should tho young man lecover, he will cany thiougli life, in tho very centre of Ins foiehead, a diamond-shaped mark. 1 wo of the balls entered the forehead jirt above the iiojc in a straight line an inch and a half apart. The two other bullets lodged about an inch apart, laterally, the four forming a mathematically perfect diamond. The motives for the attempted notion are not apparent, and temporary insanity is the only theory assigned. Moran, it appears, bus for tho 'past threo years been in the employ of the hat linn of Weldon, Stark A; Gallagher, of Norwich. Picviotts to that he served as steward on the steamer City of Worcester. He intended entering into'thc hat for himself at New Haven, and his uncle, Walter Durkin, furnished him with funds. In company with a friend, Henry G. Weldon, of Norwich, Moran enmc to the city and stopped at the Troniont House. A placo at No. 202 Chapel street was rented, tho stock purchased and paid for and arrangements to begin business consummated. Moran anil Weldon occupied a room at the hotel together und retired about 0 o'clock after drinking a glass of lemonade. Weldon arose first and noticed nothing wrong about his room mate. Moral walked on after breakfast, returning about 9 o'clock and going to his room, lleie he removed the sheets from tho bed, evidently flnot wishing to bespatter them with blood. The first shot fired brought the colored hotel porter into tho room of the suicide. This intelligent individual stood a moment at tho door watching Moran, who was sitting up in bed firing bullets at his head. The porter, then, slamming the door, rushed oil" to the police station and returned with Detective Kcilly. As the .officer entered the loom Moran was found in the act of taking a razor from the valise with the evident intention of cutting his throat. Kcilly disarmed him. The wounded man was laid on the lloor and physicians summoned. He was perfectly conscious and seemed not gieatly incommoded by the bullets in his head. He remained conscious und requested the attendance of Father Coleman, of the Sacred Heart Church, to whom he made his spiritua confession. An ambulance was sum-moiled and the wounded man taken to the hospital. Moran's ellects and two rolls of banlc notes of largo denominations were taken charge of by Chief of Police Web-ter. The valise contained well-made clothing, and the general clothing worn by the patient was of good material. Moran is spoken of us a nnit exemplary young man, with no bad habits aud of mi equable temperament. He U about twenty-five years old and was bom at Camden, N. .!., where his parents live. Ho has biothers in Norwich, lie had been stopping at the Tremont House since Monday and attracted no attention by peculiarity of manner. His proceedings in connection with the store he was fitting up weie said by those interested to have been characterized by tact and good business judgment. It is conjectured that he became nervouss over tho uncertainty of hij new coinmeicial venture here and his mind suddenly became unhinged. Ho is described us a tall, well-made young man, pleasant spoken und in excellent health. It is belioved that he will DISAPPEARED. A Country Poatmnntor Nllontly Ntcnli Aivny, Columbia, S. C, Sept. 2. John T. Price, of Pickens County, who has heretofore stood well in that community, has left for parts unknown.

Tho oflico is a small country Post Oflice, where tho stamps canceled during tho qunrter could not legitimately amount to $10.

New Yokic, Sept. 2.- A terrible case of police brutality has just occurred in this city. John Smith, a deck hand on the schooner Ellon Hasbrook, now lying at her dock in Philadelphia, wus brutally clnbbed to death by Oflicer McNamara, of tho Mulborry street police station, at the corner of Canal and Mulberry streets. Smith had been visiting tho socond mate of the sumo vessel. When they parted Smith was tho worse for liquor. lie started for his home, nt the corner of Sixty-third street nnd Third avenue. He had not gone far when ho entered the doorway of 121 Mulberry street and fell asleep. Mrs. Hughes, who tcsides in the house, called Oflicer McNnmara to get the man out. Tho officer entered tho hall way and began to club Smith in tho most brutal manner. Smith got up nnd proceeded up the Btreet, followed by the officer, who kept clubbing him about the back and arms Smith remonstrated with tho oflicer, who becamo greatly excited, and on reaching Canal street, struck tho unfortunate Bailor two blows with his club. Smith fell dead on tho sidewalk. A stretcher was sent for and tho dead sailor was removed to the station-house, wjieie tho officers reported him sick, and, as in all such cases, he was treated with The excitement in the neighborhood becamo so great, nnd such a demonstration was mado by the crowd that the body of Smith was linally examined, nnd then it was learned that he hud been badly bruised nnd hiH neck broken. Several citizens called at the station-house and left their names as witnesses. McNamara was arrested nt a lute boor nml will bo held to await tho result of the coroner's inquiry. SPECULATING ON DEATH. A Flngrnnt Cnso of Grnvoynrd Insurance nt Khonnndouh. SiiKJTANDOAir, Pa., Sept. 2. An old lady lamed Coughlin, residing near town, has i ust been buried hero. Her death and mrinl aroused much public interest from tho fact that it proved graveyard insurance to be still flourishing in this section. No sooner had her death become known thnn expectant beneficiaries flocked about her residence like buzzards ton feast. It was a part of tho contract with those who speculated on the life of the old woman that after her death they were to furnish her with a stylish funeral. The "shaiks" were five in number, and they hail somo difficulty in apportioning to each his sharo of the interment work and expenses. They could not agree readily on tho limit of expenses to be incurred. Uno party wanted one kind of a coffin, shroud, etc., while another desired something different and finer. So sp'nited was the discussion that a fracas in the dead's was at one time imminent. Mattel s were finally arranged in n common pool, nnd the deceased dunie given a Initial wholly out of keeping with her circumstances in life. A magnificent casket enclosed her remains ; hearse nnd mourners were decked in full mourning array, whilo all who to mourn could have an equipage. Tho irsurance on Jier life aggregated $1,200. Ono policy for $1,000 was held by a local undei taker, who purchased it a week previous from the original owner for $50, while the latter was on ii di imken spree. The seller was fuiious uhen he heard of the death. BRUTAL MURDER. A Xccro AfcHiiHslimtod lor So Itonson Wluitctor. AVakiu:nti.wn, Ga., Sept. 2. While Mrs. W. Felts was shaking fruit from a tree, Peter Broom field (.coloied) asked her to be caicful that she did not break ofl'itny branches. The lady lost her temper, and made complaint to her husband. While Brooinfielu was at work tooling u house, in company with three other men, Felts appeared at the foot of the ladder with a shotgun. Broomfield comprehended the situation aud pleaded for mercy. Felts said : "If you will come down and let me flog you that will be the end of it. If you don't I will kill you." Brooinfield's terrifiud companions urged him him taken flogging nnd save his life. As Broomfield commenced the descent of ladder, Felts, without saying a word, fired both barrels of his gun and two bulls from n revolver into his body. Broomfield fell to the ground, face upward, a corpse. Felts walked to where the body lav, and with a curse, fired threo bullets from a pistol into the dead man's breast. Then turning to tho terrified spectators, Felts said : "Three, I guess that fixed him," aud walked uwny, since which he has not been seen. The negroes aro intensely excited, nnd say if they capture Felts they will burn him alive to a stako in tho woods. Broomfield was nn inoffensive and well liked. Felts is twenty-seven years old and a member of nn aristocratic family. CINCINNATI PICKPOCKETS. A Gaiic or Them GetlliiMT la Their Work in Louisville. Lexington, Ivy., Sept. 2. Four men, John Edwards and George Smith, of Cincinnati, tho former representing himself as residing at Central avenue and Court street, J. S. Hayes and James King, the latter of Greensburg, Iml., huvo been on tho Fair Ground here. All aro charged with being pickpockets.

All of tho men came hero on tho excursion train from Cincinnnti. When arrested the men wero nil in one cornor of tho ground, where, it is assorted, they wero dividing monev. Sovcral empty pocketbooks were found outsido tho Fair Ground fence. Edwards says his father is a horse trader of Cincinnnti.
