HEDGES IS REMOVED Superintendent of Free Deliv ery at Washington Accused. CHARGED WITH FALSE STATEMENTS laid to Hart Reported Himself at Tai-lona Place When He W ' In Fact at Time Hundred of MHee Away. , WASHINGTON, July 2S. Charles Jledges has been removed from the of fice of superintendent of free delivery , it the post office department on the Charge of falsifying his diary and loan ing his traveling commission. It is charged that he reported himself at va rious places when In fact he was not it those places on the dates mentioned, In some Instances being hundreds of miles away. Mr. Hedges, while making no general fienlal of the charges, contended that they were not 6tuHclent Justification for inspector in charge at New York, has been designated acting superintendent f free(dellvery in place of Mr. Hedges. The following is the official statement f the case made public by Fourth As ' listant Postmaster General Brlstow: 'i "Charles Hedges was removed from the office of superintendent of free de livery for falsifying his diary and loan ing his traveling commission. He re ported himself at. various places ' on ublic business when in fact he was lot in those places on the dates men tioned, but elsewhere, in some instances 1 hundreds of miles distant. . . "On Oct. 25, 1800, he states under lath in his diary that he was at Joplin, Mo., on 'extension of free delivery serv Ice,' when in fact he was in Mansfield, 0., attending the funeral of ex-Secretary John Sherman. . On Dec 7, 1800, " tie reports himself at San Antonio, Tex., Investigating carrier service, irhlle In fact he was In Mexico exam ining mining property. v : "In the month of October; 1809, A. W. Machen, superintendent of free dellv ry, was sick with typhoid fever, and Hedges was at the department acting is superintendent. - In his diary he itates under oath that he was at vari ous places namely, New York, Phila delphia! Bridgeport, Conn.; Camden, N. ' I., and elsewhere, 'actually engaged in - traveling on the business of the free de-r , livery service.' Assistant superintend- -' Hem of 4 per day in lieu of expenses . for each , day engaged actually travel- "mfif nn th huniriPNS of th 1fnnrTrrlt Hedges' false statements as to his thereabout on these days .were mani festly for the purpose of collecting per i "There are many bther instances, of K , ilmilar falsification. The. facts 'were ' mbmitted to the postmaster general " iome days since, who directed Hedges' removal for the reasons . above set .forth." ' ; :' . , There were several charges on file igainst Mr. Hedges, but none of these tonstltuted the basis of his dismissal. The acts which led to his removal were ,C lis covered by the inspectors; in the: Hjourse of their general investigation of . ihe records of the free delivery office. ; The case has been under investigation j (or several weeks. Mr. Brlstow sum . noned Mr. Hedges and notified him of fcis dismissal. Mr. Hedges . reiterated Us contention that his dismissal was lot warranted. In a statement Mr. Hedges says: "While I was assistant superintend- mt rf frfA flollwprv: with ViAfldnuo tH-era It New York, I was called to Washing ton to take charge of the entire service rhlle Mr. Machen was ill with typhoid fever. While so acting I got $2,000 sal try: as assistant 'superintendent, while Mr. Machen1 received $3,500. It was ' xwafiat,v fAf m tr crai- Vth nai Aia,m a 1 towance to make the services and the , Kwnpeniation equal. "It is charged that the per diem ac counts show me at other points, the theory being that, strictly speaking, under the law I was not entitled to per Hem when at headquarters, i This has ever been tested, consequently never tedded.

It was used with the' knowledge If General Superintendent Machen and f First Assistant Postmaster General Johnson. Valentine was anxious to go sut on field work. Mr. Brlstow refused to allow the issuance of a commission for Valentine on the ground that he ,was a clerk and not an officer. Mr. Machen, however, held that as Valen- office his use of the commission was not illegal. "As to the San Antonio reference, I was in Mexico, but not examining dining property. I did not see this mining property. In making my re ports I never put down towns that I had not visited, nor did I put down all the towns that I visited, as I was per tnltted to do. Thus I omitted mention do official work there, and Joplin was the last plaee where I had official work.

The Woodland Paper mill, incorporated, sit uated on the trolley lines between Hart ford and Manchester, has been totally lestroyed by fire, and the loss is esti mated by Superintendent J. T. Gamby it about $150,000. J One , employee, William Haskins, . a fireman, lost his life. A portion of a brick wall of the structure fell upon him while he was attempting to draw the fires in-the building. , He tried to accomplish his object, knowing that the building was doomed, but thought himself safe from immediate danger. k fellow fireman who was with )him, after warning him of his danger, fled ust in time to escape a smillar fate. Hasklns was burled beneath the ruins of the wall, and firemen- and others worked hard to recover the body, which was done after considerable work. The lead fireman resided in East Hartford and is survived by a wife and five chil dren., . . , " , The fire broke out in the stock room and was well under way before it was discovered owing to the inflammable nature of the. contents. A line of hose was put into operation, ahd messages for help were sent up to Burnslde. It became evident in the meanwhile that the structure would be doomed unless a fire engine could be got on the scene, and Hartford was communicated with. An engine drawn by six horses was In stantly dispatched and succeeded in quenching the flames and saved a por tion of the machinery from destruc tion. . , .'v : The mill Is located on the site of the did Ha nmer . & ' Forbes Powder mills and has been an industrial spot for three-quarters of a century.

The monarch of the Packsaddle mountains Has been slain and the ranchers of the valleys are rejoicing and loud in their praises of the brave young woman who put an end to the career of the beast. , j: ;. The old monarch' was a monster jaguar, one of the largest and! fiercest of the species that was ever killed in Texas. He had preyed upon -the herds and flocks of , the Packsaddle( ranchers and terrorized the people of that section for five years. Big, rewards were of fered at different times 'for his scalp, and 6ld hunters with large packs of trained hounds frequently pursued him. ' A neighborhood hunt was finally , or ganized and notice was sent .to every rancher in the Packsaddle mountains and valleys to meet at designated lo calities on the next day with arms and dogs. Few people had any faith in the successful' termination of the chaBe, from the fact that they had failed upon" so many former occasions. The final hunt, however, had one new element the women. . The young women, were particularly in earnest, and they repaired .early to the various meeting places, well mount ed, and most of them well armed. , Chance and Cupid here, joined hands. Miss Fanny Ney, a granddaughter of a brother of. Napoleon's favorite marshal, was one of the most determined and spirited of the crowd of hunters. She was one of the first to arrive on the ground. She was mounted an a magni ficent horse, but she complained that she had been unable' to secure a good gun. "My brothers," she said, ."have appropriated all of the rifles about our house, and I have been forced to con- 'We have had our troubles Over the servant-girl problem, the same as the rest of the world," said the Pittsburg er, "and whenever new one comes to us we hope for a week or two that we have found the lost jewel.

Toadi '.Found In Rook. "Amazing," said a scientist, "is the popularity of the belief that toads live tor Jong spaces of time la rooks. Only last week a quarryman sent to me a toad that he had found imbedded, he Btid, in a' solid block of stone. Of course there is no truth in the idea that these leptiles ' can . exist shut up "for' years without food and air, but there is truth tn the stories of their being found In rocks. The rocks, though, are not sol id, as the finders incline to think, and the toads have only been in 'them, It' is : probable, for a few hours instead of for years and years. Toads, you see, take naturally to sequestered places tp cUf ts in rocks or trees. A quarry man or a lumberman ;; breaks into a rock or a tree, finds a live toad im bedded and thinks the reptile has been there since time began. As a matter of fact' the toad has but recently crawled there through, a little passage of some, sort, but the passage is so well concealed that .the, ; eyes of the man have failed to disclose It Phila delphia Ledger.

"That 1b a shame and a slander!' exclaimed my wife. . I'll test her to morrow, and I'll wager any money she'll come out pure gold." She tested her by leaving four dia mond rings on the dresser while she went shopping, and when I came home at night my wife was In tears. The girl had taken the rings and sloped.

When a Filipino saw his name on the chart he inquired at the window for his letters. If he did not find his name there was no use In bothering the delivery clerk.
