The single bullet which struck Mr Morgan entered and the right Bide of the abdomen and passed "out at the left side without penetrating the walls. There was no internal bleeding but every like lihood that the wounded man would recover in a thect time. The only excuse known for the shooting was that Mackey had com plained to the authorities at the post office in Washington that his mall had been tampered with and that some one turned out an electric light when u was reading by it In the corridor of the post office. Mack ey had received a reply that there Wjs no evidence of tampering witll his mail and that the incident of the electric light was an accident. Mack ey's employers, the Arm of Hunt, Hill and Betts, declared they could account for the tragedy only on the theory that Mackey was insane.

" There "were several persons within a few feet of the two men, but none of them heard a word spoken and the first intimation they had of trouble was when a bullet ahot rang out and Mr Morgan fell to the ground with a bullet through his stomach. He lost consciousness immediately. For an Instant after the shot had been fired the assailant stood looking down upon, his victim. - Then he rais ed the still smoking revolver and pressing it against his forehead pull ed the trigger. The bullet did not cause i. fatal wound and once more and then a third time, the man ut a bullet crashing against his skull. The third ball penetrated the brain and the man fell dead. As he lay there with the revolver still clench- ' ed in his hand,' several persons' who had witnessed the double shooting rushed up . to the assistance of Mr Morgan' whom some of them had rec- - ognized. A physician was calle:l from a house nearby and was with the wounded man within a few mo- 'jinents after the first shot had been Jlicu. m iiu tuo aooioiaua ui a num ber of men In the crowd which had quickly gathered - he removed Mr Morgan to his residence only a few doors from the corner.

He came from England nine years ago, worked for a time in Boston and .then came to this city. Mackay was held in high esteem by his employers and they are complete ly at a loss to explain his act.

These Indicate that about a year ago he had com plained to the postmaster that some of his mall had not been properly de livered. This correspondence was signed by one of the regular depart ment clerks. Mackay's employers say that so far as they knew he 'never met or had any dealings with Post master Morgan.

The comb of tortoise shell has a very pale aud translucent yellow, the only really valuable kind of shell "Many people think this pale, un mottled shell tbe cheaper kind," tho dealer said. "Do you know yvhy? Be cause tbe imitations are all made like this. - . "That is one vulgar error about shell. Another is that tbe tortoise is killed to get-its shell casing. That Is s absurd an error as It would be to say a sheep was killed to get Its wool. "What is done is this: The fisher men, having caught a tortoise, tie him and then cover his back with dry grass and leaves. They set fire to this stuff, it burns slowly, and the heat causes the thirteen plates of the shell to loosen at the Joints. With a knife the plates are pried off, and afterward the tortoise Is set free. The base, or root, of his shell is Intact and will grow again. If tortoises were killed to get their shell they would long since have become extinct. ; . "No, no. Every ' tortoise Is, as It were, a farm a shell farm. Fishermen catch him regularly and with heat and a knife gently remove, bis shell." New Orleans Times-Democrat' COLORS IN THE OCEAN. Various Causes For tho Different Tints - of tho Water. Sky and cloud colors are often re flected In the sea, but Just as tbe air has its sunset glory so water has its changing tints quite apart from mere reflection. Olive and brown lines in the waves off the coast come from the muddy sediment washed from the shore, as blues arise chiefly from reflected sky. But there are many other colors In the ocean.' On almost every long voyage at sea spots of reddish brown color are noticed at one time or another. When a few drops of the discolored water are examined under a micro scope myriads of minute cylinder shap ed algae are seen, some separate, some Joined together iu scores. It is this organiam sometimes called "sea saw dust" which has given the name to the Red sea, although It also abounds In other waters.

INQUIRIES ARE ANSWERED President; Wrltoo, '' Do Not Boliovo That Our Follow Citizens Can Bo In dueod by Narrow Bigotry to Refute to Vote For Any Thoroughly Upright Man Boeaufo Ho Happens to Have a Particular Religious Creed." ' Washington, Nov. 9. President Roosevelt made public a letter written to one of many perilous who addressed to 111 m inquiries concerning the re ligion of W. II. Taft. This letter Is Intended as a reply to all. It rend: I received many letter, during the cam paign expressing dissatisfaction with Mr. Taft on religious grounds some of them on the ground that he was a Unitarian and others on the ground that ho was suspected to be In sympathy with Cath olics. I did not answer any of these let ters during the campaign because I re garded It as an outrage even to agitato ' such a question as a man's religious con victions with the purpose of Influencing a political election. You ask that Mr. Taft shall-"lt tho world know what his religious belief is." This Is purely his own private concern, and It Is a matter between him anil his Maker, a matter for his own conscience, and to require It to be made public un der penalty of political discrimination Is to negative the first principles of our gov ernment, which guarantee complete re ligious liberty. Mr. Taft never asked my advice In the matter, but If he had asked It I should hare emphatically advised him against thus stating publicly his religious belief. The demand for a statement of a candidate's religious belief can have no meaning except that there may be dis crimination for or against him because of that belief. To discriminate against a thoroughly upright citizen because he belongs to some particular church or because, like Abraham. Lincoln, he has not avowed his allegiance to any church is an outrage against that liberty of conscience which Is dne of the foundations ot American life. Mentions John Quiney Adams. You are entitled to know whether a man seeking your suffrage is a man of clean and upright life, honorable in all his dealings with his fellows and fit by qualification and purpose to do well in the great office for which he is a candi date, but you are not entitled to know matters which lie purely between him self and his Maker. If it la proper or legitimate to oppose a man for being a Unitarian, as was John Quincy Adams, -for Instance, as is the" Rev. Edward Everett Hale, at tho present moment chaplain of the senate and an American of whoso life all. good Americano are proud, then it would bo equally proper to support or oppose a man because of his view on justification by falth: or the method of administering the sacrament or the gospel of salvation by works. . ' : -, .'. Now, for your objections to him be cause you think his wife and brother to be Roman Catholics. As It happened, they are not, but If they were or if he were a Roman Catholic himself It ought not to affect In the slightest degree any man supporting him for the position of president. You say that "the mass of the voters that are not Catholics will not support a man for any office, especially for president of the t'nlted States, who Is a Roman Catholic." I believe that when ybu say this you foully slander your fellow countrymen. I do not for one moment believe that the mass of our fellow citizens or . that any considerable number of our fellow citizens can be In fluenced by such narrow bigotry as to re fuse to vote for any thoroughly upright and fit man because he happens to have a particular religious creed. Are you aware that there are several states In this Union where the majority of the people are now Catholics? 1 should rep robate in the severest terms the Cath olics who in those stales refused to vote for the most fit man because he happened to be a Protestant, and my condemnation would be exactly as severe for Protestants who under reversed cir cumstances refused to vote for a Cath olic. Refers to Hi Cabinet. I know Catholics who have for many years represented constituencies mainly Protestant and Protestants who have for many years represented constituencies mainly Catholic, and among the congress men whom 1 know particularly well was one man of Jewish faith who represented a district In which they were hardly any Jews at all. I believe that this republic wilt endure for many centuries. If so. there VIII doubtless be among Its presidents Prot estants and Catholics and very probably at soma time Jews. In my cabinet there sit side by slda Catholic and Protestant, Christian and Jew, each man chosen because In my be lief he Is peculiarly (It to exercise on be half of all our people the duties of tho office to which I have appointed him. Baltimore, Nov. 9. Cardinal Gib bons upon being shown a copy of Presidert Roosevelt's letter relative to the religions belief of Mr. Taft said: "I would like to say two things about the letter. First. It Is well worth reading and pondering over; secondly, I knew it was coming out." HITCHCOCKTO SEE TAFT. National Chairman First Takes Root at French Lick Springs. Fretick Mck. Ind., Nov., 9.

THE PALACE WAITED. A Suggestion That Changed tho Plans of a Pope. At a time when there was great suf fering among tbe people from lack of food and when famine In Its worst form was threatened Pope Alexander VI. had made arrangements for the erection of a magnificent palace. The best architects bad been employed, and the plans had been submitted and ac cepted, and an accomplished builder had been sent for to come from Venice, a man whose work had won for him renown and who was known to be a Just aod upright man. The bnilder had arrived, and at an appointed time he watted upon his holiness to receive the plans aud make bis estimates. "There la one thing yet to be done," said tbe pope. "There has been no proper Inscription or leg end thought of to be placed over tbe main entrance of tbe palace. It should be put above tbe great gate. You have bad experience. Do you think of an In scription that would be appropriate?' "If your holiness would pardon me for the liberty, I might suggest one most appropriate at this time." . "You are pardoned In advance," said the pope, smiling. "Now, what shall It be?' "Sovereign pontiff, let It be thus: "Command that these stones be made bread!" '- ' Tbe pope was visibly and deeply af fected. He paid tbe builder munifi cently for bis expenses of coming and going, and instead of building his pal ace he fed the hungry ones of his children. - ' ' ; ' 1 , Poverty Has Its Advantage.

The lord mayor's show to-day celebrating the installa tion of Sir George Trussott In suc cession to Sir John Charles Bell, was a more dignified and more interest ing spectacle than usual.
