Cleveland as a Fisherman.
William 11. Crane, the comedian, Is some
what of a fisherman himself, but he yields the
palm to Grover, Cleveland. “I never saw a

said Uncle Kllhu, "spend all their time pull

catch the flab." ‘As for me,’ says Cleveland,

Three years after tho Sepoy rebel
lion had been put down in India, and
with tho country under suoh military
and legal discipline as it had never
known before, I was nt Hyderabad, a
largo towrt , r >oo miles oast of Bombay*
in the province of Dekkan. It was
thero that a band of professional
thugs, numbering thirty-two men,
was captured and executed in 1860.
Tho vigorous search after and prompt
punishment of criminals was having a
duo ofToct, and not a caso of poison
ing or strangling had been known
about Hyderabad for several months.
In fact these two classes of murder
ers were supposed to have became
Ono morning a ryot, or farmer, was
found dead on tho public square, nnd
it was speedily discovered that he lind
boon choked to death. Tho imprints
proved it to bo the work of a strang
ler. Tho thug used a cord, while tho
strangler used his lingers. About
twenty days aftor tho first case a wo
man was found dcud within three
blocks of tho public square, and she
also had been a victim to the strang
ler. Not only had she been choked
to death, but her neck was broken.
The police were again aroused, and
bodies of cavalry scoured the country
and brought In dozens of suspicious
characters, but, as in tho other ease,
nothing could bo proved, and all had
to bo released. Ton days later tho
strangler counted his third victim,
and this timo it was n European,
Only at raro Intervals before tho mu
tiny had a European fallen a victim
to tho professionals of any class. It
seemed to bo an understood thing
with all not to mcddlo with them in
any mannor.
Tho policoand the military now
quite lost their heads. During the
following week thero woro about 700
arrosts, somo of them being made
200 miles away. Nothing like detec
tive work was attempted, nnd as a
consequence every suspect had to be
discharged for want of any evidence
against him. Tho authorities seemed
to go on tho idea that if a sufficient
number of pcoplo woro arrested tho
guilty party would somehow betray
himsolf. Strong efforts were madoin
three or four cases to convict on
shady testimony, but every few
weeks every person who had beon ar
rested was sot at liberty. Being now
to tho country, and having takon a
great interest in tho work of exter
minating tho "professionals,” I asked
lor information on every hand. Ono
day. in conversation with a Major
Burke on tho subject, ho expluinod:
‘•ln my timo I have inspected tho
hands of at least a scoro of stranglers.
Their strength lies mostly in wrist
and fingors. Beforo graduating ns
professionals they practice on dum
mies nnd resort to certain gymnastics
to strengthen the parts I have named.
Ti>is man now among us is certainly
a professional. If arrested you will
find his thumb flattened on tho bull.
If I were a dotectivo I should go
about looking at thumbs. In most
instances tho victim loavos scratches
or cuts on tho hands of tho assassin,
which would further holp mo indon
tify him in caso of suspicion.”
From that timo on I instinctively
glnncod at tho hands of ovory native
with whom I canto in contact, but
without tho slightest hope of making
any discovery of value. Fivo weeks
after tho murder of tho clerk the
strangler was hoard from again. This
timo his victim was a sergeant of
infantry, and ho mot his death on tho
highway between tho town and tho
camp. It was about 9 o’clock in tho
evening when ho started for camp,
and it wus known that ho was con
siderably under tho influence of
On the third day after tho ser
geant's death I had a bit of chain
work to do on a piece of land two
miles east of town, and my lielpor
was a natlvo who hod served in tho
department for a year. Ho was a
mlddlo-agod man, very slender, nnd
his weight was not above 120 pounds.
He had driftod into tho town at tho
closo of tho war, and it was told of
him that ho camo from tho North nnd
had boon faithful to tho English dur
ing tho struggle. Whon not acting
ns a helper in tho field ho had tho

Tho only name that ho was known
by was Peter. Whon I sent him word
that I wanted him lie returned a re
ply that ho was ill, but half an hour
later ho put in an uppoavanco and ex
plained that ho was feoling better.
Wo had reached tho field and had
fairly begun work when my attention
was attracted to his hands. The

I knew he had a inonkoy at tho sta
ble, nnd his explanation was perfect
ly satisfactory. Tho matter was for
gotten in n moment, nnd it would
never have occurred to me again but
for what followed. It was a scorch
ing hot day, and aftor an hour’s
work wo sought tho shade to rest.
As I was lighting my pipo for a
smoko Peter observed that ho was
very thirsty, and would visit a spring
he know of about a quarter of a mile
Tho field.on which wo were work
ing had once been cleared, but was
now protty well grown over with
bushes and small trees. Ho disap
peared at my back, and I gavo him
no furthor thought for many minutes.
I had out my book and was making
some field notes whon all of a sudden
it struck me that Peter had a pecu
liar look as he explained how ho had
received the wounds on his hands. I
remembered that his face hardened
and that thero was a cruol glitter in
his eyes. Things of this sort novor
striko one at the moment, but are
vivid when recalled. When I re
membered his looks I wondored that
he had not killed tho monkey for at
tacking him, and I reflected that the
man must have a hot temper when
I do not suppose I devoted over
five minutes to this train of thought.
As time passed I forgot my surround
ings while busy with my pencil.
Piter had been gone about thirty
mtnutee, as l afterward figured up,
mhm I was euddenly elutobed by the
J and was reclining to the left. My
• eyes caught no gljmpse of anything,
nor had my ears detected the slight
est sound to put mo on my guard. !
The first sensation was exactly that
of falling. I remembor a roaring in
tny ears and firoworks dancing beforo
fay oyes, and I was perfectly conscious
that my throat was ifi the clutch of
human fingers. What saved mo was
tho tree and tho position. Iq which I
sat. I did not realize that t strug
gled to break tho clutch, but I did
put forth a mighty effort. My right
shoulder nnd arm were a lever ugainst
tho stranglor’s right wrist, and as I
heaved I broke his clutch and leaped
to my feet.
It was Poter, as you have suspected.
Ho had gone only a fow rods away
and then turnod and crept back on
ine liko a serpent. His routo was
through bushes and tines, but when
I camo to go over it I ebuld not find
that ho iiud broken a twig. My
springing up throw him down, but ho
was on his feet like a cut, and with a
cry liko that of an enraged beast ho
sprung for my throat again. His eyes
wero fairly blazing, his faco distorted
with passion, and I realized in an in
stant that it was his lifo or mitio.
lie clutched for my throat with his
right hand as wo rolled about and I
caught tho ends of his first two fingers
in my teoth and bit to the bone. That
ono bite gavo mo tho victory. Still
gripping his fingors I struggled to my
knees, reached for fny revolver, nnd
I had tho muzzlo against his body
when tho thought flashed across my
mind that ho was tho professional
strangler wanted by tho polico. Up
to that instant I had no thought as to
why lie attacked me. When I dropped
liis fingors and covered him with tho
rovolvcr, lie made no further resist
ance. Tho native of India, like tho
Arab, believes in fato.
"Sahib, you have won," ho said as
I stood over him. "It wus to bo,
und so it is. Do as you will with
"Potor, why should you sock my
lifo?" I asked even yot hoping thero
might bo somo mistake about it.
"Why did I strangle tho others,

"Good heavens! but you aro not tho
murdorer of tho farmer, tho clerk and
tho soldier—you who liavo been con
sidered so faithful to tho English?"
"Even so, sahib. It was to bo, and
it is. Take mo to tho polico and I
will admit everything, and dio liko a

countered a troop of cavalry which
was then returning to town with no
loss than twenty-six prisoners. Had
Peter denied his admissions to mo
nothing could liavo been proved, and
ho only would liavo been punished for
But lie felt that fato had delivered
him into tho hands of his enemies,
nnd he was willing to help convict
himself. He gave the particulars of
each murder with such detail thut no
doubt could exist. It was tho ser
geant who had lacerated his hands.
Ho was keeping shady while he waited
for them to heal. Ho would not havo
accompanied me that day but for tho
fear that ho might bo suspected,
though as a matter of fact ho would
havo been among tho very last to fall
under tho ban.
"I had no thoughtof strangling you
whon wo started out,” ho said to mo
after liis trial. "It was only after
you had noticed my hands. Whilo
you appeared indifferent. 1 was afraid
that you suspectod. I could havo
snatched away your pistol and shot
you dead, or I could havo beaten you
to death with a club, but my creed
would not permit. I must either
strangle you or lot you livo on. Had I
been successful I should havo mado
my way north ns soon as possible.”
lie did not hesitate to toll tho po
lico that he was a professional stran
gler, nnd it was with considerable
pride that ho exhibited tho flattened
thumbs and illustrated tho manner in
which the deadly clutch was made.
Ho had boon a professional for up
wards of twenty years. Ho spout ono
whole day making out a list of dates,
localities and victims, nnd tho num
ber of murders was appalling. Tho
figures ran up to forty-two or forty
throe, and thero wero seven Europ
eans among them. lie begged no
ono’s forgiveness—had no apology to
Peter went to tho gnllows with the
utmost indifference. Ho did not even
betray tho anxiety of a man walking
about tho street. Ho was, I believe,
tho last professional strangler exe
cuted in that province, although his
class flourished everywhere, and wero
picked tip ono by one for many years
after.—Chicago Times.

Gems Made to Order.
A Glasgow chemist claims to liavo
succeeded by u simple method in ob
taining precious stones that approach,
in nil their characteristics, tho noblest
products of nature. The details of
tho process arc,of course,kept secret.
Working on a laboratory scale nnd
■ using small vessels, stones have been
obtained over ono-sixteenth of an
inch in diameter, nnd very large
numbers havo been funned approach
ing Hint size. These are hard, infus
ible nt all ordinarily attainable tem

What German Boys Drink.
Gorman boys who work in tho open

except school days, get very thirsty,
of course, and must drink a great
deal. Tho German mothers to keep
their boys well nnd hardy, aro very

for them, to take the placo of water,
which is not nourishing at all if takon
in large quantities. Honeyado is the
favorite outdoor drink for German
boys. It is made in this way. An
ounce of ginger is boiled for an hour
in two quarts of water. Then two
quarts of cold water, a pound of
sugar, an ounco of lime juice and two
ounces of clear,sweet cider aro added.
Whon all is cold, tho white of an egg
is whipped in and n lemon is squeezed
over tho honeyado jar. Tho sturdy

Money and Health Went, and no On*
Would Give Him Shelter.
Patrick Glennon was a most un
fortunate man. 11m inherited some
money from liiß father, and about the
same time discovered that ho was an
incurable consumptive. For two
f'oars, though he looked well, his
icalth was wretched. lie lost his
monoy, too, having intrusted it to •
rotative, nnd he and his sister disa
greed, so that he hud no home. Ho
lived in Jersoy City and Mayor Cleve
land befriended him. The mayor
made him a clerk in his office at a
small salary. Ho lived in a cheap
room at Symes’ hotel.
Severe! times he had to go to tho
hospital- In that way ho lost his
place. For several months ho did
nothing at all. Ho was too sick.
Ho had plenty of friends among the
Jersey officials and they mado up $69
for him a month ago. On this he
lived for u timo.
Ono day they put him out of Symc.V
because the other boarders objected
to his presence. They did not litco
consumptives. So ho went down to
Meshutt’s hotel on Montgomery
street. Thoro tho proprietor put
him out for tho same reason. Ho
went back to Symoe* then, but Symes
told him ono day that he could not
sliiy any longer. Glennon wan in {lm
In the afternoon ho came over to
New York aiyl called on Amos Pike,
a fruit merchant) ho knew in Wash
ington street, says tho New York
.Sun. Ho wanted a commission to go
to Florida and send up consignments
of fruit. Perhaps the warm climate
might cure his disease. But Mr.
Pike didn’t want to send a man South,
nnd neither did Nolan & Shute, a
fruit firm to which ho applied. So
ho sadly went back to Jersey City,
lie hunted up John D. Gorman, the
president of tho tax board, who had
often befriended him. Mr. Gorman
said ho would try to get him into St.
Joseph’s Homo next day. Mr.
Gorman then went to the hotel keep
er and Induced him to let Glennon
sleep in tho house that night. But
Glonnon did not know this.
About midnight, tho unforfunato
man, who had spent the evening in
the warm corners of several saloons
on Newark avenue, started for New
York. If ho could not find a bed in
Jersey City perhaps he could across
tho river. Ho had $1.38 left of tho
S6O his friends had given him, and
this would suffice until morning,
when Mr. Gorman would get him into
tho home. He went to Smith & Mo-
Noll’s, on Washington street; but by
tho timo he got thero he was very ill.
Tho hotel oflieo is upstairs. 110 was
unable to mount tho steps, so two
customers in tho restaurant below
hclpod him. They led him tottering
to a chair in tho office and seated
him thero. Then thoy left.
"Well, do you want a room?” asked
the night clerk from behind tho desk.
But Patrick Glennon was dead.

Rt. Louis, Feb. 24. —In a group of
business men smoking cigars nftcr din
ner at the Mercantile club the other
afternoon, the statement was made by
a manufacturer that the city would
spend fully a quarter of a million dol
lars in testing smoko-preventing de
vices this year. He meant, of course,
the manufacturers of the city who have
joined the club which intends to clear
the air of the smoko. This club got up
the bills organizing the city crusade
against the smoke nuisance, which the
Mayor has just signed. The laws es
tablish a bureau with inspectors, whose
duty it is to prosecute ‘those who will
not use smoke preventing devices on
their furnaces. A peculiarity of the
law that distinguishes it from those
proposed in other cities is that any in
ventor can have his device tested and
its merit decided upon by a board of
experts paid by the city. The club
hopes to rid the city of half of its smoke
cloud by the beginning of summer.
Ever since the Merchants’ bridge
was completed it lias been seen that
Rt. Louis would have to have nnothi r
one to cross the Mississippi for the
special use of foot passengers and
vehicles. The Eads bridge built up
East St. Louis, and the Merchants’
bridge made Madison and Venice grow
into flourishing tows. The people of
these two towns cannot get to St.
Louis on foot or by vehicles. They
must use the regular trains of the Mer
chants’ Terminal Company, or wait for
slow ferry-boats. They want a bridge
over which electric cars can run. and
people can walk. The bill now before
Congress provides for this kind of a
bridge, which is to be built by St.
Louis men at a cost of about 8500,000.
Mayor Noonan has just signed a bill
that will give St. Louis another elec
tric street railway before the crowds
begin to fill the city for the
Fall Festivities. The road will
run along Grand Avenue, one
of the widest nnd most important resi
dence through fares of the city. It will
enable one to ride from tho cemeteries,
to the Grand Avenue viaduct, and
across that to Tower Grove Park. The
road will cost half a million dollars,
und will be built entirely by St. Louis
Tho St. Louis Turner societies are
noted all over the United States for ther
g3'mnasts. There are six turn halls in
the city, and the membership of the
societies is over 20,000. About live
hundred of tlic best of these gymnasts
are being drilled for exhibitions at the
World's Fair. The corps will include
all the young athletes who participate
in the events on the Turner nights at
the St. Louis exposition, and there will
be besides, a specially drilled body of
a hundred men or so who are known
among tho Turners everywhere
ns prize-winners in the national
competitioi s. The corps will go to the
World's Fair prepnred to issue and re
ceive challenges for all sorts of feats of
strength and skill, nnd they hope to
engage in competition with Turners
from Gcrmanv.
