This week's New York Mirror con
tains a splendid picture of Miss Mary
Louise Clowes, daughter of George II.
Clowes, who appeared in this city dur
ing the present season. Accompanying
the picture is the following sketch:
"Mary Louise Clowes, whose portrait
appears on this page, is a young actress
whose debut was made in Mrs Fiske's
cbnipany two seasons ago. She is the
daughter of a Manufacturer long prom
inent in Waterbury, Conn. . Her moth
er is a member of the Blacknall family
of North Carolina. ' Miss Clowes, after
finishing her school education, pre
pared for the stage. Her first appear
ance before the public was effected in
'Mary of Magdala.' Her second en
gagement was with Robert Downing' s
company in .'The Honorable John
North.' The past season she played
the part of Belle Gordon in the melo
drama "At Crinple Creek." Miss
Clowes Is pretty, her voice is excellent,
and in her . brief experience she has
proved herself to be equally well
equipped for serious and comedy roles.
Herxheart is in her work and she bids
fair to win success. Having finished
the season, she is now in . New York
seeking a suitable engagement for the
coming theatrical year."

than to the line of parts he was por

! dramatic fate of all bad men in melo-
drama death during the last act.
i Two soldiers in the play were assign
ed to shoot him, but, unfortunately
for the progress of the ' scene, both
guns missed fire The "heavy man,"
however, proved equal to the embar
rassing situation, for his death was
the cue for the climax, and it had to
take place. Gasping ' for breath, and
clutching his coat in the region of his
heart, he dramatically cried .nit:
"I die: shot by an invisible air gun!
But with my dying breath I curse the

DE PEYSTER JEWELS
Raid on Albany "Growler
Gang" Unearths Great Loot.
PLUXDER NOT FROM LIVINGSTON TOMB
Collections of Jewelry Valued at
.. Xhoiaanda Found onv Vagrant.
iFence Homie Stored Witli Old '
Family Treasures. -
ALBANY,' N, Y., May 21.-TThe sensa
tional results of raids by the Albany
police upon a resort in South Lansing
street, intended to break up a "growler
gang," were believed to afford a , se
quel to the recent mysterious raid up
on the family tomb on the old Living
ston .estate below Hudson. . V
A collection of jewelry . of intrinsic
value running into the thousands of
dollars and of priceless value as heir
looms was found upon the person of
Thomas King, one of the vagrants,
ind concealed about the house.
The arrival of Chief of Police Maloy
of Tivoli-on-Hudson , has exploded the
tomb robbery end of the story, but
brought, to light the fact that the fam
ily residence of General Frederic de
Peyster at Tivoli was looted on Mon
day, nig'ht in the absence of the fam
ily, and Chief Maloy conclusively iden
tified practically all of the booty as
belonging to the De Peyster family.
From him it was learned that this is
the third robbery of the house. Upon
the last occasion, ' he said, $27,000
worth of jewelry was taken. He fully
identified King,' who is a wandering
tanner, and William Johnson of Hud
son, who is a cripple, as two of three
men whom he himself saw on Mon
day night near the De Peyster house.
Charles Murphy, also of Hudson, is
in custody and . is believed to be the
third man. Three other men, classed
by the police as "hoboes,'.' were arrest
ed in 'the raid, which was made upon
complaint of neighbors. If the gang
had dispersed as the policemen com
manded no arrests would have been
made,, and the jewelry might never
have been recovered. They resisted,
however,, and .were brought to police
headquarters. When King was search
ed the amazing collection 'of jewelry
was found upon him. He declared that
he , found , it beside the railroad track
near Reading, Pa. Tie house was
then searched, and an additional lot of
the stuff vas found, including scatter
ed fragments in the back yard.
The loot recovered includes two or
three hundred articles, most of them
r marked with names, monograms or
initials of the De Peyster and Living
ston "families, which intemarried, or
with those of ancestors.; For instance,
there is a ring marked "Anne Watts,
July, 1775," and a locket marked with
the De Peyster monogram fnd the
following inscription: "Helen Living
ston, Wife of Frederic De Teyster,
Esq., Died on the Night of 25th Sep
tember, 1801, in the 28 yr. of her age
Granddaughter of . Robert Gilbert Liv
ingston." ' -'
In addition to these the police have
found in the local pawnshops a number
of valuable articles pawned by , mem-:
bers of thegang. The police say that
King and his companions are of the
clumsiest sort of tramp thieves. Some
of , the articles of bullion value alone
as high as $75 and $100 they had
pawned' for 50 cents. A " diamond
brooch had been sold for $2, and all the
money had been spent for drink. .
v Ke said it was now known that no
jewelry was entombed with the beauti-
ful Lady Mary Livingston. Members
of the family and neighbors who, were
present at 'her funeral had . long ago
disposed of the 'jewelry legend with
the well authenticated statement that
the only thing with , her in the casket
was a cluster of roses.
King and the restpf the gang have
been sent to the penitentiary on
charges of vagrancy for thirty days
pending Investigation. .'- ..'
Kindness of Heart.
"What, makes you tell such ex-
traordinary stories about your '.fish
ing trips?" :
"Well," answered Mrl Bliggins, "If
you could see how disappointed the
folks are when I don't tell 'em a few
good ones, you'd realize that it's just
kindness of heart." . Washington

Strength in Pulling.
The pulling strength of men and
fcaimals was recently, shown in an ex
hibition of a circus at Madison Square
garden, , New . York. For each pound

j A Schoolboy's Vengeance. , .
Forty years ago a boy was whipped, as
he considered, unjustly, in a country
schoql in New YofIi state. He swore
vengeance, and when he grew to be a
rich man he bought the schoolhouse and
demolished it. No further proof is need
ed that he deserved the whipping., f

mand for news.

SHORTER WORK DAY.
12 Hors a Day Good for a Man One
Woman Says.
Hartford, May 21. The Equal Rights
club held its last regular meeting of
the season in the Cheney building last
evejiing,' adjourning subject to the call
of the president. In the absence of the
president, Mrs James , G. Bacon, the
chair "was occupied by Charity Com
missioner James G. Bacon, who talked
on the labor . question, . "Should ..the
Hours of Labor Be Shortened?" Mr
Bacon is a compositor employed by the
Case Lockwood & Brainard Co, . and
lids until recently been president of
the Hartford Typographical union.
He paid special attention in his talk
to the trade with which he is, from
long connection with it, thoroughly fa
miliar. He also traced the growth of
trades unions, which he said ", were
formed, on the brotherhood of man,
principle, with the idea that a man
should look out for his fellows as much
as for himself. He. also spoke of the
combinations among the employers of
labor to control the output of articles
and prices. He said that trusts were
trades unions among employers. Com
missioner Bacon referred to the bill
which has been before congress to
make the legal day for all government
contract work eight hours, and fa
vored the passage of such a bill. Econ
omists had declared that ..the world's
work could be done in less than eight
hours a day. '
'He spoke of the organization of the
local Central Labor union and refer
red to the movement some years ago
for , the early closing of ' the grocery
stores. When he first - came to the
city all stores were kept 'open even
ing:s, but the custom had been changed
and the time would come when the
stores would be closed every evening.
One of those present didn't see how
people were to arrange to make their
own purchases if they were, employed
the same hours that the stores :. were1
kept open, and Mr Bacon struck a
blow at .woman's love for shopping
when he said that It wasn't necessary
to make purchases in person that the
telephone could be used to . order
things. ,
One woman thought the men who
worked twelve hours a day were the
happiest - and that it was better for
them to have their minds occupied. If
the men were to work only six hours
a day, the women, also, should have
their workday cut down. In this con-'
nection there was some discussion as
to the way things could be arranged
so that a woman could do her house
Work "in fewer hours. .
".' fimane Prisoner.
1 While a Swiss policeman w as conduct
ing a handcuffed Italian prisoner into
Italy, they were overtaken by a violent
snowstorm, and the policeman was
obliged to take off the handcuffs and at
tach himself to his prisoner with a rope
so as not to lose him in the blinding
storm. Finally the policeman fell ex
hausted. .-The Italian dragged him
across a pass, brought him in safety to
a village, and then disappeared, after
refusing a reward.
Dust Floated Over Ocean.
Scientists have explained the great
dustfall that surprised southern Eng
land in 1903. By a study of the weath
er maps -it' was shown that the dust
originated on the northwest coast of
Africa, and, after riding out In a
great cloud, far over the ocean, to the
neighborhood of the Azores, it turned
to the northeast and was sprinkled
over England. It resembled, when
swept up, a fine reddish-yellow pow

A recent maritime disaster calls' at
tention to a tiny Maine village of his
torical interest. Peniaquid Point was
one of- the earliest of the New England
white settlements, and the ruins of the
stone fort, built there in 1860, still stand
near the steamboat landing. With, a
short and bloody history, Indian hos
tility making the locality uninhabitable,
the towli site was shortly afterward
abandoned. " '
