A PLAClf OF SUICIDES. BEAUTIFUL LOOKOUT HILL, MADE FAMOUS BY WASHINGTON. A Spot in lirooklyn's Magnificent Tark Where Despondent I'eople Go to Com mit Suicide Memories That Cfustcr About the Neighborhood. Most New Yorkers know very little of Lookout bill in Pro.-pect park, Brook lyn, except that they occasionally see Borne mention of it in tho newspapers. One Brooklynite who was asked for in formation about it the other iay de scribed it ar. a place win re "fooL from New York go to coiniiiit suicide some times." This description of Lookout hill is hardly a fair one. It is true, however, that for some reason men who want to commit suicide do somehow manage very frequently to drift out to this part of Brooklyn's big paik to carry out theii intention5. But they don't all of them go from New Yoik. There have been two suicides there by BrookT.ito3. The two that preceded these, however, were men from New York, ai:d of the many prior to these Brooklyn may be charged with the mo;-t of t.hf m. One htonny,- ;:;sowy "!ay a v.vll dressed j'ouiig man hired r. cab in thi.; city and vTas driven rapidly over the bridge: to Brooklyn and out to Pro.-.peet park. When the cab re-ched the city lir:p the young man g-.t out and sent it back to New York. Ti."U he went into a saloon near by. lie 1' ft the saloon, entered the park, walked thiough the driving snow to the summit of Lookout hill and there shot himself. A policeman heard LLe shot, and found the body of the suicide still warm, but he was dead. He had evidently intended that there should be nothing cheap 01 vulgar about the affairf for even tho re volver used by him was of the most ex pensive pattern and make and had been bought new lor tho purpose. He was identified as a Columbia college student belonging to a Xcv York family of ex cellent standing. REM AUK AliL.II IDLXTI IICATION. The suicide bef re this was also that of a New York man, and it attracted some little attention at the time by rea son of the fact that there was a mix up about tho idt ntification of the body. This had lain on the hill so long before it was found that it could be identified only by the clothes on it and by the for mation of the body. It was formally identified at tho Brooklyn morgue the morning it wan found as tho body of a New York printer, who had, through despondency, taken his life. This identification was made by two members of Typographical Union No. G, who had known tho' man. Later that day the body was again identified as that of i barber doing business on Third arenuo in this city, and thins identifica tion was finally found to be correct. The most curious thing about this case was the physical likeness of the printer and tho barber. The barber was de formed that is, he had a club foot. The same was true of the printer, and it was the left foot that was deformed, as was tho case with the barber. They were physically alike otherwise. Then the printer's friends identified the clothing, the shoes and the hat and even a knife that was in the pocket of the suicide. But the printer wasn't dead. The writer knows that, for he reported the first identification for an afternoon pa per; the second was made too late for notice that day, and in about a week afterward the printer brought suit against that paper for $00,000 damages for saying that he committed suicide. He didn't get the $20,000, but he did prove to the satisfaction of all tlntt he was very much alive. A HISTORIC PLACE. But there have been any number of suicides on Lookout hill. Brooklynites are inclined to object to the use that is made of this picturesque spot, and as for tho Prospect park police, they moro than object. They constantly patrol tho neighborhood of the hill, and any lounger about there is sure to have a very care ful eye kept upon him by the bluecoated guardians of the park. Lookout hill is one of Prospect park's picturesque and historical spots. It is a high hill looking out over the big lake and the boulevard, and is heavilj7 wood ed. As a point from which to view the surrounding country it is unsurpassed. From its brow you can see for miles in all directions. Coney island, Manhattan beach, and even Far Kockaway, are vis ible to tho naked eye. Flatbush and other towns nestling down among tho trees, and the farms stretching out over the level country, present a fine scene at this season. General Washington used this very hill to make observations from when he was holding Brooklyn and watching for the expected landing cf Sir Henry Clin ton on Long Island. It was from here that the American generals watched Clinton's movements when preparing for the disastrous battle of Long Island that Resulted in the retreat of Washington to the heights above i he Harlem and cave New Yorl into tho hands of Henry Clinton. The tide cf battle jswept all around the hill and in the green field bt-low it good blood stained the sward. But times have changed. Battles are still fought in the ikid below Lookout hill the sham battles of tho Brooklyn militia. And the hill itself is no longer visited lv rreat general.- Those who want to commit ;-;:ioide go there instead. New York Ueconkr. How i)t iitists Acquire S-kill.

BUSINESS ANNOUNCEMENT. Important to Those Who Do Not Pay liilhi I'rompl Jy. A number of bills are due us on sub scription and advertisements, and many of them are worn out in being carried around for a year or more and still they are not paid. The editors of both The Sun and The Glore have turned ove$ a new leaf. They expect nay for value received. Un less these accounts are paid, after a rea sonable number of presentations; or sat-i-:'acloii!y arranged by calling on the editors of the Durham dailies, a Hit will i,e :a le of names and amounts ant! pub-ii:--i..i in the respective papers. This :n:;iu.-rjiust be attended to at once. STILL TH ERF. We ! li Straight That the I'driiicr 11. st Dtiiiomi Kid fs Near II i iishoro. Another pilgrim comes from Ifillsboro to day, and says that the festive kid with his rattler and his bawl is still at. Hills- boro, and that his mother and father have not visited him for some time. This is infamous and outrageous. The Jiillsboro people or, rather those near there where the innocent kid is located, write Tin-: GloueUic kid must go, or else there will be tiig sensation. Cow a Diamond Cuts Glass. It has been ascertained by a serire f experiments that a diamond does iwrfc cut out tho glass, file fashion, but forces the particles apart, so that a continuous crack is formed along the line of the in tended cut. The crack once begun, very small force is necessary to carry it through the glass, and thus the piect is easily broken off. The superficial crack or cut need not be deep, a depth, accord ing to fine measurements, of a 200th part of one inch is quite sufficient to ac complish the purpose, so that the appli cation of much force in using the dia mond only wears out the gem without doing the work any better. . Numerous stones, such as quartz and other minerals, when ground into proper form, will cut glass like a diamond, but are not so valuable for that purpose, lacking the requisite hardness and soon losing the sharp edge necessary to make the operation a success. St. Louis Globe Democrat. The 3Ieu Who "Tos In." Here is a fortunate man who can walk half a mile on Broadway on a busy day and escape being trodden on by some one behind him. It is a curious fact that nearly all of the men who uncon sciously of course step on Women's dresses and wipe their feet on other men's trousers are victims of the unfor tunato habit of "toeing in." " Show me a man wdio toes in and 1 will show you a man who is eternally stepping on somebody's heels," said a Wall street philosopher the other day. "There are a great many men who toe in down town, and as 1 am obliged to be on the street a good part of the day I have to suffer from them. Why, some days it becomes necessary for me to in voke the aid of a bootblack three or four times in order to keep the bottoms of my trousers clean and to renew the polish on the heels of my shoes."
