DOLLARS.
Washington, May 27. Postmaster
General Payne yesterday summarily
dismissed Daniel V. Miller, assistant
attorney in the office of the assistant
attorney general for the postofflce de
partment, on the charge of accepting a
bribe in connection with the case of
Johr J. Ryan & Co., charged with
fraudulent use of the mails. A war
rani has been issued for Miller's ar
rest
Another warrant has been issued for
the arrest of a man who is charged
with being the partner or a ?o-betwee
in the transaction. A postoffice in
spector has gone West from Cincin
nati to effect the arrest, which is ex
pected to occur to-day. The bribe is
alleged to have been accepted at Cin
cinnati last December.
Miller came here from Terre Haute,
Ind., about two years ago. He was ap
pointed by former Assistant Attorney
General James N. Tyner.
Wanted by Inspectors.
The charge against Miller has been
under investigation for three months.
The Ryan company was a turf invest
ment concern which operatea at St.
Louis and Covington, Ky. Its meth
ods and working operations are said
to be similar to those of the Arnold
company, which figured conspicuously
in the postoffice investigation.
Postoffice Inspector W. F. Wickery,
In charge at Cincinnati, and Postoffice
Inspector R. M. Fulton at St. Louis,
recently were given fulll charge of the
case. Complaint was made by Inspect
or Fulton before a United States com
missioner in Cincinnati Saturday and
then a warrant was issued for Miller
and the other party. Inspector Fulton
immediately came to Washington,
while another inspector went west
from Cincinnati to make the other ar
rest Inspector Fulton yesterday ex
hibited the papers in the case to Unit
ed States District Attorney Ecach.
Miller is in the custody of a postoffice
inspector and
His Formal Arrest
will follow to-day. Miller was at nls
desk all day yesterday. He was called
into the office of Assistant Attorney
General Rcbb shortly after 3 o'clock
in the afternoon and notified of his im
mediate dismissal and of the steps
thai had been taken.
The Ryan company was the bene
ficiary under a dec*-ion of the assis
tant attorney general of the postoffice
department, made several ninths ago,
subsequent to the decision in the
Arnold case, and couched in practical
ly the same terms as that decision,
Those decisions declared the concerns
named to be free to use the mails.
It is stated that the amount offered
Miller as a bribe aggregated several
thousand dollars and was in the form
of a cash payment, followed by a
check. This payment is alleged to
have taken place in Cincinnati, so that
case will be tried there, probably in
the October term of the court. Mr.
Miller probably will give bail for his
appearance at that time.
STARVING IN ALASKA.
Native Indians and Eskimos in a Dis
tressing Condition.
Washington. May 27.The war de
partment was informed some time ago
that the native Indians and Eskimos
in Alaska weve in a starving condition,
and at once instructed Gen. Funston,
commanding the department of the
Columbia, to report on the conditions.
The reports of suffering came particu
larly from Nome. Gen. Funston has
submitted a preliminary report in
which he says steps will be taken im
mediately to ascertain through army
officers in Alaska the extent of the des
titution. The general contemplates
visiting Alaska, when he will make
further inquiry.

WIVES OF FAMOUS MEN.
Geniuses Not Very Successful in
Choosing Helpmates.
Many great men had curious expe
riences with their wives. The poet
Heine on the day after his marriage
drew up a will, in which he be
queathed all he possessed to his wife
on condition that she married again.
He desired, he said, that at least one
man should regret his death. Field
ing, the novelist, married a serving
maid. Sir Thomas More's wife
scolded him on the eve of his execu
tion. Milton had trouble with both
of his wives, nor was his the monopo
ly of the martyrdom. Hazlitt's wife
cared nothing for his ability. Her
temper was intense, and the tragedy
of the unsympathetic played itself
to the hitter end. Coleridge left his
wife and children without an apology
or. farewell and never would see
them again. Moliere at the age of
40 married an actress, aged 17. She
ran away from him. Shelley married
an inkeeper's daughter. He soon de
serted her and she committed sui
cide. Alexander the Great used his
sword against women rather than for
them, and one of his favorite pas
times was beating his wives wiui
the flat of his steel blade.

Nothing but Water Colors, According

doctor was preoccupied and scarcely
heard the remark.
"Has her ladyship exhibited any
traces of hysteria?" he suddenly de
manded, turning to the talkative
nurse.
"Oh, no, sir," was the unexpected
reply, "they was water colors, all on

Donkey Partial to Panamas.
Samuel Wilkins of Pittsburg will re

ten days ago.
Mr. WilKins threw his Panama hat
on the sands and read a book. A
beach-front donkey happened to be
running loose The animal espied the
Panama hat on the sand, and, believ

During a voyage, on the sudden

having run aground, considerable
alarm took place, especially among
the female passengers.
"What is the matter? What is the

FORTUNE IN THE MISTLETOE.
Georgian Baa Made Money In Provid
ing Wreaths of Holly.
In Georgia there Is a farm devoted
to mistletoe and holly growing. It is
owned by the Cartledge family, con
sisting of mother and two daughters,
hut the daughters do the farming. It
all began through the failure of the el
der sister to make an immediate tri
umph in art, to study which she went
to New York. She realized in the
great city, as she never could have in
her rural Southern homo, that talent
for art is too general to leave much
hope for special distinction, and wisely
concluded to turn to something that
would bring more speedy results. Be
ing an observaat young woman, Miae
Cartledge noticed that holly and mis
tletoe brought extremely high prices
and bethought her that on the 600
acres at home In Georgia both grew
in wild abundance. She returned home
and she and her sister begac to pre
pare for making the neglected luxuri
ance of marketable value. In the
months of January and February fol
lowing they set out 10 acres of young
holly trees with their own hands. The
colored farm nands would not plant a
holly tree for worlds, as they believe
that if they did they would die as soon
as the tree became tall enough to cast
a shadow the measure of their graves.
Last Christmas the sisters found the
trees so grown that they required thin
ning out and the trees that were re
moved were sent North for Christmas
trees and brought high prices, as they
were symmetrical and covered with
large, rich berries. They plant the
mistletoe berries under the bark of the
old oak trees In a crack or hole,
where they can get a hold as they
germinate.

Men's Lip* Now and Then.
After a man has worn a moustache
for ten, twenty, thirty or more years
and shaved it off, his upper lip looks
like a piece of dried pigskin. It is as
expressionless as an army saddle. It
gives to a weak mouth a rigid and de
termined look. Compare the shaven
aiy wit
thoB
ago, whend was a crime against so-
iooeyears ciety to wear a mustacheof Th men's
lips of Washington's time were like
Cupid's bow, a term which could be
applied to-day only to the lips of lovely
women. Take any of the old prints.
Look at any of the oil portraits of the
period between 1770 and 1830. The
sternest men in public life had the Cu
pid's bow to perfection. Their lips
were as soft as velvet. They must
have had a "big drag with the girls."
