His long frock coat closely buttoned accentuated the pinntness of hi fijrnre, and this, with the streaks of white In hU hair, made him appear to be a compromise between an illuminated spook and an animated moonbeam."

Cable. Here come the Daily America, one of the brightest 'and beet of Kew York'e journals, with this announcement: The election of John f. Hopkins to the Chicago mayoralty is an inci dent to which considerable political significance attaches. It means n further strengthening of the body of young democratic politicians that eame to the front in Illinois with the second election of Cleveland. It makes clearer the probability that the old war horses of the party will have to get off the track or be content to take orders from the youngsters. The directing genius of the new democratic regency is Hen Cable, the youthful e.gfesmaa from the Rock Island district, and his associates are Hopkins, fleeing. Mkels. Russell.

M. 8. 8 , at anchor in Aden harbor, having been tnree yenra on the East Indian station. was clearing out his caliin prior to be ing ordered home, and finding bis Lon don hat case opened it, and, aa may easily be credited, three years' moth and damrmeea had reduced its tenant to a dilapidated condition, besides which sundry pictnres in illnntrated journals bad made the gallant ca4ain aware that bis onro fashionable tilo had lecn superseded by a shorter and more early nrimmea description of the batty pen us. Wanting in shape, color and condi tion, tbe captain said to hid servant. "Throw it overboard," and overboard it went, but was not got rid of, as events quickly showed. Ono of tbe crew of a boat from the flagship coming from tbe snore, espying tbe bat floating in tbe water, picked it up, and seeing tbo name inside the coxswain brought it to Um commander of his ship, and be sent it on board Captain Kay's ship with his complunenta, thinking of course that it had fallen overboard by acciiV-nt. "Dash the hat!" said Captain Kay; "here, chuck It overboaid again, nnd tell your commander I'm very much obliged," and down be went to his cabin. Two hours afterward tbo hat return ed, Inuking sadly oat of repair, with Captain N. 'a complimcnta. This time it bad been picked up by tbe boutkeeprr ia one of the boats lying astern of Cap tain K.'aship, an American man-of-war lying farther down Aden harbor, and having been dried in tbe ran was sent back to its proper ship ami owner. "Tell Captain N. I'm very morn obliged to him," said tbe now wrathful captain, and tbo American officer departed. "Confound tbe hat!" said Captain Kay. J shall have to auk N. to dinner. Here, brine; mo a shot or a lamp of coal or something else heavy." A lamp of coal waa produced, it was placed in aide, and by the captain's directions tbe hat waa taken down tbeaccomnxMlation ladder, carefully allowed to fill With water, and it aankl "Well. I've mm tbe last of that bless-4 hat." said Captain Kay, and whistling cberrfnlly di-scended to tbe cabin, but again be underestimated that hat's reaurrvctive powers, for two days afterward a parcel arrived addrvesed to "Captain Kay, II. 3L K a with S rupees V annas to pay. The money paid, tbe parcel was opened, and inside. looking still more dinre putablo and dis-i-iated, was tbe bat again, together with a very civil note from tbe so peril i Und ent of police, saying that ono of the diving boys and there are swarms of them, aa any one wno ban lieen in Aden harbor knows had f ootid the Incluaed bat, which be saw from tbe name inside helnoged to Captain Kay, and aa he knew Captain Kay would wish tbe div lug boy to be rewarded for his honesty be bad presented him with a rupee, which actiua he hoped would meet with the captain's approval. Police station fees, 1 rupee and boat hire. 1 rapes 8 annas! Then Captain Kay smiled graciously at the hat, and he ordered a big fire to be lit in tbe stokehold, and when it waa very hot he took the hat below, and bavins; Jumped oa it directed It to be pravhsd into tbe hottest part of tbo fur- tMce. aad then he gloated over its de atrnctioa. but eves as It crumbled to ashes.?'Catitaln Kay, R.

HOW IT WAS WORKED ON SUSPECTS BY INSPECTOR BYRNES. Um Shrewd af Wayaf Maktac Um Canty Scenea intense, dramatic, borriblo beyond conception to the men who are compelled by a subtle force, a moral magnetism, to convict themselves with their own nacontrollable words are not Infrequent at police headquarters. An interesting case waa that of Mo Gloin, a tough who killed a French man. There was little positive evidence against him. Everything waa enppoai- titioas, but Thomas Byrnes' supposi tions in matters of that kind are likely to be not far from right. He was reasonably certain that Met i loin was gnilty, and that there had been three witnesses of the crime. Tbo names ana whereabouts of these probable witnesees be knew. hlcGIoin bad aim pawned a pistol. Byrnes guessed tVit it was tbe pistol with which the cAio had been committed. Bat be had not n particle of proof of any ono of these things- One day, however, be bad UcUloln and tbo three other men arrested, tak ing earn that no one of tbe quartet abonld know that tbe others bad been captured, giving no one of them an in kling of wbv be bod been taken into ens- tody. This also occurred daring Byrnes' term as innpector. He occupied tbe room now used by Inspector McLaugh lin, and around its walk in those days were tbo cases of implements and me mentoes of crime now on exhibition in the museum across tbe halL Into this room, where, as be entered, a tall glass case full of the ropes and black caps which had figured in tbe city a execu tions stared him in tbe face, StcOloin was led. Neither the surroundings nor tbe fact that be was to be closeted with the famoDs police official worried him. however. Ho was fall of the bravado of tbo "tough." One of the windows of this room looks out ripen the courtyard in the cen ter of the building. Inspector Byrnts placed a chair so that its back was close aginst this window, and another facing it, with only room for knees be tween it and the casing. To tbe latter chair htcUIoin waa led. Aa be sat there he had a full view of the court yard. Byrnes sat in the other chair. with bis back to it. dose on Byrnes right was a desk. Th as arranged, tbo plot began to un fold. Fur 10 minutes tbe Inspector talked earnestly to the prisoner without good result. Then be touched a licll. The door of the room opened, and cn olaennions Jew entered, and approach ing the dtk laid on it a pistol. He G loin's attention was attracted by the noise of the newcomer, and be turned to see the pit1ol with which be bad killed tbe Frenchman nnd the pawn broker to whom be bad pledged lL Without n word, bnt keeping bis eyes on JUculom s, the Jew backed out of tbo room. It was a good deal of a shoc k to McGloin, bat not enough to break down his bravado. "What in does this mean?" be demanded boldly. "Oh, nothing," replied the inspector nonchalantly. "It is merely a pixtol 1 wanted to see. " Then he picked it up. "Handsome weapon, isn't it, McGloin? Might kill a man. eh?" Then, laying the pistol down again. tbe inspector went on calmly talking about tbe crime. JUcGIoin, beginning to feel the mystery, tbe dramatic force of it all, was getting nervous. He looked for a moment at the inspector, bat one long, steady, searching glance from those penetrating eyes made him quick ly turn away and direct bis gaze out of the window into the courtyard again. Thus relieved of the strain of aeeing disagreeable things, bo began to regain his self gisjstwion. "A man named Barber suw that crime committed. said the inspector quietly. McGloin started a trifle at bearing tbe name. Then Byrnes saw his face pale, and his mouth twitch, and knew that Barber waa being led across the yard between two officjts, and that McGloin was watching them. Even this did not break McGloin cawn, however. Five minutes later, though, when Flint, tbe second witness, waa marched between two bluecoats across tbe court, be start ed almost from his chair. "Bit still. McGloin," said Byrnes impassively. "Another of those witnesses I spoke about was named Flint" From that time on McGloin weakened. Then, har ing spoken about Flint's connection with the crime, Byrnes said, a lew in in ntes later, "And the third witness. Mc Gloin, was Henry Farley." As the words left Byrnes' lips Farley began a slow progress across the yard. Byrnes had worked the third degree. McGloin yielded all at once. With a cry cf ter ror, be literally sprang from his chair. and falling to his knees clasped Byrnes about his legs, crying like a child, con fessing and begging the inspector not to have bim banged. His prayer was not granted, however. He was executed a year later ia the Tombs yard, and tbe three witnesses were sent to state prison for 19 years each.

A LITTLE HERO. A led In KIHa IVaat arte Life The little district seboolhooss atCoop- erville. Livingston county, was honed down Monday. Tbe teacher. Miss Mabel Porter, aged 20, and a little hero scholar lost their lives. Two hours after school opened Miss Porter detected tbe smell of smoke. She opened a door leading into a woodshed to discover if anything was on fire. As she did so the lUrnes burst Into the schoolroom and enveloped the teacher. Miss Porter screamed aad fell forward Into the fire. Immediately the schoolroom was la an aproar. There were 23 scholars, most of whom are small children. Two brothers Melvin and Charles Cham bers, aged 14 and 16 years displayed re markable presence of mind. To their bard work at tbe risk of their own lives is given the credit of saving most of tbe imperiled pupils. There waa but one door that opening into the burning shed ly which entrance to the scbool- bouse was aft orded. The brothers, see ing escape cut off in that direction, tore a seat loose from the floor, placed it un der a window, smashed the glass and managed to lift tbe children through. Three girls fainted, and it was with dif ficulty that they were dragged through tbe little window to a plaie of safety. Four-year-old John Johnson, eon of a farmer residing near by, was burned to death. He was tbe teacher's pet. When he saw her fall forward into the fire, he ran to her side in a vain and futile effort to protect her from barm. So be died like a hero. When the ruins of the school- house were searched, tbe charred bodies of the teacher and the noble little fellow were found side by side. Tbe Chambers boys were both severely burned about the face and arms. The younger inhaled so much hot air that it is feared serious injury may result. Rochester Special.
